Wild Isle Style: Resourceful, Original and Inventive Design Ideas (Hardcover)
Not Yet Published
Living on the remote island of Mull has inspired Banjo Beale to be resourceful, inventive, and original—which he calls his Wild Island Style. Mindful of the environment and budget in everything he creates, and combining vintage finds with clever design, he re-purposes the old and re-imagines it into something new. From contemporary to classic, his spaces are characterful, curated, and conscious. His spaces tell a story about the people who inhabit them. In his first book, Banjo wants to encourage people to give design a go and create their own style by thinking outside the box. Don’t defer to the homewares brands to redecorate—from our backyards to scrapyards, mudlarking to marketplaces, masterpieces sit in waiting. It just takes imagination, a sense of adventure, and a little bit of courage to make it happen. The re-purpose and reuse revolution has already begun with more people turning to Facebook Marketplace to buy, swap, and sell than ever before, Antique Fairs are attracting a new generation of collectors, and curators and Instagram stores are popping up everyday with curated collections aimed at an audience who are looking for something unique to express their identity. No matter your style, from budget bougi to boho nouveau, this book will uncover universal ideas that you can easily implement into your next design. This is an accessible bible to creating authentic, cost-effective interiors.
